Colorado defines forgery as making, using, or possessing documents that are wholly or partially falsified. The most common instances of forgery are signing documentation as someone other than yourself, or signing a fake name on a document. Forgery can occur on any legal document, though checks typically are the most common medium of forged documents.
Depending on the severity of the case, forgery can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, resulting in punishments that can be lower fines and probation to much larger fines and even jail time.
Forgery is a white collar crime, a crime that is financial in nature, and typically occurs in a business environment.
